    I may be the only one who can't figure this out, but I have looked at the online demo read the help and I cannot make the tool tips work.  I have installed the microsoft ajax stuff, the prometheus stuff and the 2007 Q1 rad controls update.  If I have missed something there let me know.

    Could someone please give me a simple idiots guide to making the tool tips work.  For now I just want a simple tool tip manager example.  I have started a new page and done the following:
    1) drop on the scripmanager
    2) drop on a toolTipManager
    3) drop on a text box and set it's tool tip value to "tool tip 1"
    4) changed the skin for the tooltipmanager to web20Orange.

    I run the app and my tooltip is windows plan jane like always.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks

    Hi Nato,
    Could you please provide additional information on the error you get? The steps you describe seem correct.

    The first step of the ones you describe leads me to the idea that you create ASP.NET Web Site (please correct me if I am wrong). Please try creating an ASP.NET Ajax-Enabled Web Site. By doing so, your config file will have all the necessary httpHandlers and httpModules. Please review this article for additional information(check the topic called Adding ASP.NET AJAX Configuration Elements to an Existing Web Site).

    Ok, you fixed his immediate problem, but issue he brought up is true.  Of all the Telerik controls this is least documented and it is inconsistent with the others.  In all the others you push using Themes and the Skins can have paths and all that.  Suddenly you switch to EmbeddedSkins while leaving the whole theme world out.  What gives?

    The new skins are a bit hard to understand indeed, especially if we are used to the rad Controls for ASP.NET. For example, what is the difference between the Skin and RuntimeSkin property?

    Also, as far as I can tell, there is not equivalent for the RadControlsDir property - is this the case? If we want to move the Skins to any folder, we need to copy them from the Prometheus installation folder, then manually register the Css files (e.g. ToolTip.Inox.css) in the <head> tags - all the images needed will be then referenced relatively by the Css file (so no need for RadControlsDir property? The path to the .css file in the <head> is the actual path?

    Hello Kevin,
    We understand that the way we handle the Skins in the Prometheus suite is different compared to the approach used for the previous versions of our controls. That is why we have added instructions in the Help to explain how Skins work and how you can use these with themes. Please review these topics and in case you have additional questions, we will be glad to provide additional assistance:
    1. How skins work
    2. Skin registration
    3. Modifying built-in skins
    4. Creating a custom skin
    5. Using skins in ASP.NET themes

    Ok, I read everything I could find on how the skins work.  I followed all the steps in Creating a custom skin and now when I pull up the page and go to the control that has the RadToolTip and custom skin attached the ToolTip pops up naked.  There is no border, no background, nothing but black letters.  I set the Skin property of my tool tip manager to my custom skin.  I tryed to set the SkinID property as well but with the same result. 

    Any help would be stellar.
